Thousands of employers in Ohio who have been overcharged for workers compensation insurance premiums will have to wait at least a few more weeks before collecting a share of the $420 million court settlement.
Stuart Garson, one of the plaintiffs’ attorneys, tells The Columbus Dispatch that distributions probably will go out in the first half of May.
The case had been settled last July. The deadline for filing a claim was in October, with the hope that the money would be paid in February or March.
The settlement ended a class-action lawsuit that dragged on for years. It created a fund to repay businesses that were overcharged for workers compensation premiums from July 2001 to June 2009.
About 29,000 claims were filed.
